UNIVERSITY OF RHODE ISLAND STANDARD INSURANCE REQUIREMENTS

Vendors and contractors doing business with the University or organizations using University premises or facilities should carry their own insurance to protect their own interests from allegations of bodily injury or property damage liability caused by their own negligence. Certificates of Insurance, which provide evidence that such coverage is in place, should be requested from all entities before engaging their services or permitting them to use University premises or facilities. The The Rhode Island Board of Education, The University of Rhode Island, and The State of Rhode Island should be listed as additional insureds on the certificate. Entities with which University departments do business may sometimes request such proof of University insurance coverage.

MAINTENANCE RESPONSIBILITY
The Department managing the contract or requesting services is responsible for maintaining the certificates of insurance. Therefore, it is important that the contractor/vendor is provided the name and contact information of the individual responsible for the contract maintenance so the Certificate can be sent directly to the appropriate person. The Certificates of Insurance should be kept in the department’s file for a minimum of 3 years. It is important to check the expiration dates of the insurance policies to be sure Certificates of Insurance are maintained throughout the life of the contract.

Below are the minimum standard requirements. The University of Rhode Island reserves the right to consider and accept alternative forms and/or limits of insurance.
